Feuds between rappers and record labels are as old as the rap game itself. The problems between Houston superstar Megan Thee Stallion and her label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, have been no secret.
Megan The Stallion vs. 1501’s Carl Crawford
Former Major League Baseball player Carl Crawford is the founder of 1501. In a recent interview on Heavy Live with Scoop B, Crawford addressed the issues with Meg and said while the business will be handled, he doesn’t know if their personal relationship can be mended.
Crawford: ‘We Want (Megan) To Honor Her Contract’
Things went south between artist and label after Megan Thee Stallion signed a management deal with Roc Nation but, according to Crawford, did not inform the label. “We want her to do well, but we just want her to honor her contract,” Crawford said. He added, “We’ll definitely handle the business part, but just as far as the personal stuff, I don’t really know about it.

Tory Lanez Goes Live + Addresses Shooting
During his broadcast, Lanez questioned why people immediately went after his head without getting all the details behind the July 2020 shooting.
“Learn the story first. Learn the factual parts of the story first and then get at me and be like, ‘Yo, you need to fix this and then this and then that,’ if that’s what you feel like I did. But instead I’m being toyed around for a narrative that’s like I’m the poster boy for I don’t like Black women. I want to get into this because it’s very important for me to just say this and I’m not here to bash this woman. I’m not here to come down on this woman. I’m not here to disrespect her or throw her under the bus but it comes to a certain standpoint where I can’t let my character to be assassinated for things that are not even really true.”
Lanez took things a bit further by explaining how Megan Thee Stallion’s narrative appeared to change after she realized the incident turned them into a viral joke.
“She goes through a lot and she deals with a lot on a day to day basis and because of that, she’s not used to – we’ve never seen a moment where the memes come at like, ‘N*gga, let’s laugh at your pain! Ha! Ha! Ha!’ She’s never had to deal with that because she’s always been praised. So everything that’s been happening to her is a reaction to everything that’s been going on. So it gets down to this point now where the reports are starting to say – nobody has ever said she got shot. Nobody ever said she got shot. Not TMZ. Not the police report. Nothing is saying she got shot. Soon as she sees herself on video with the bikini and the things like that, it looks bad, she then says, ‘Yo, the narrative of me getting cut by glass is not true.’ She doesn’t point at nobody or say anything – she says she was shot at her feet with the intention to harm me and put harm and danger upon me.”
